ISO 14000

Overview

In accordance with the International Organization for Standardization – ISO, the ISO 14000 family addresses the company's Environmental Management System – EMS. An organization with an effective EMS, will be able to:

  • minimize harmful effects to the environment caused by its activities, and
  • achieve continual improvement of its environmental performance.

An EMS that meets the requirements of the ISO 14000 family becomes a management tool that allows organizations of any size or type to:

  • identify and control the environmental impact of its activities, products or services
  • improve its environmental performance continually
  • implement a systematic approach to establishing environmental objectives and targets, to achieving them  and to demonstrating that they have been achieved.

The Challenge

ISO 14000 family is a tool that can be used to meet internal objectives:

  • ensure top management the assurance full control over organizational processes and activities that may impact the environment
  • ensure employees that they are working for an environmentally-responsible organization.

ISO 14000 family can also be used to meet external objectives:

  • guarantee compliance with environmental issues for external stakeholders – such as customers, the community and regulatory agencies,
  • comply with environmental regulations,
  • support the organization's claims and communication about its own environmental policies, plans and actions,
  • provide a framework for demonstrating conformity via suppliers' declarations of conformity, assessment of conformity by an external stakeholder - such as a business client - and certification of conformity by an independent certification body.
